The Hairs – I’ve Been Working Out

By Chris Gedos


Stereogum unveiled last week The Hairs’ new single, “I’ve Been Working Out”, a song with such a facile understanding of the canon it’s deserving of several encores within the blogosphere. The refrain lyric, “I’ve been working out, I get to wear a Jesus crown”, is rooted in the iconoclasm and sacreligiousness which has permeated Rock since Bill Haley. Be sure to check their bandcamp for a collection of ditties which clock in at less than two minutes, in preparation for the I’ve Been Working Out EP, out Feb. 21st on WeePOP! Records.
